  • With an ID

    $('#' + id).is(":checked")
    

    If you want to check by name

    var $boxes = $('input[name=thename]:checked');
    

    where "thename" is the name of the checkbox. Checking by name come in handy if you have multiple checkboxes to check
    For Example:- If you have an array of checkboxes with same name(creating a checkbox list),you can loop like following.

    $boxes.each(function(){
        //do stuff here with this
    });
    

    And for checking that how many of them are checked in the list:-

    $boxes.length;
